From Pro Stock to Pro Mod, Constant Aviation Factory Stock to Top Dragster and Top Sportsman, NHRA has released the class schedules for the 2022 NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series. NHRA on FOX's Brian Lohnes walks us through the list.
I was glad to see that all of the events still include both Top Fuel and Funny Car. A comment they made when announcing the schedule of events awhile back, made it sound like that may not be the case. Hopefully it will still be 16 car fields as that part isn't included on today's announcement. The last event I attended with 8 car fields was Fremont's Golden Gate Nationals in 1982. It was a shame to see top cars like Shirley, Lucille Lee, Raymond Beedle, Al Segrini etc., not qualify, so lets hope that 16 car fields are still there.
I was also glad to see that, other than losing the Top Fuel Harleys, the Seattle event that I attend every year, is unchanged in it's classes competing there. Hopefully, there are not too many changes for the events that the rest of you attend.
